This book is about a pet dog, Barry, a very especial dog indeed, since he was born on the day his young “bosses” Gustavo and Eduardo celebrated their tenth birthday. Born and raised in Portugal, Barry lived happily in his nice house surrounded by a garden until the day his human family moved to Belgium and made up their mind to take him with them. Barry did not like the idea of making such a long car trip; he had never been inside a car in his life! He tried to escape but got caught and had to be resigned to his family’s wishes. Barry was sad and angry, and when the car stopped in Spain and he was put on a leash, he thought he had had enough and decided to punish his family for what they were doing to him. He managed to get loose and ran away… and lost track of his family. What happened next is what you’ll find out when reading the whole story. But all’s well that ends well and, as you may guess, Barry soon learned how to enjoy traveling by car.
